Sad to see this happening. We followed Ben's PDACorps.com for a while, linking to their reviews, and they in turn sent some visitors to Geekzone.
According to Ben, there was a fairly big change in lifestyle, and after a successful and happy time of running the site he had decided to stand down from the daily activities with the domain. Subsequently, PDACorps is up for sale!
Ben sent use an email, saying thanks to each and every visitor, member, contributor, collaborator, site owner, manufacturer, developer, sponsor, and anyone else for making the running of PDACorps a great experience.
